The couple of weeks before Christmas break were filled with exam after exam and quiz after quiz. It was actually kind of nice because it broke up the monotonous days of 3rd trimester. But these couple weeks are also filled with lots of parties!
On Friday, we had the Palmer Prom! It was awesome! So here’s the scoop: Palmer rents out a venue, brings in a band, provides snacks and puts on an amazing dance party! Ask any of my friends, I’m not the person who goes out and dances, but I danced and had a great time.
We all got ready together and took classic prom pictures. 🙂 We had a driver drop us off and everything; it was great! The band was amazing! They played all the best current hits as well as the best classic rock songs. It was awesome to relieve some stress and just forget school for the night. 🙂
The next morning we all went out for breakfast at a local restaurant, Riefe’s*. My family loves that place. It’s local, the food is great, and the prices are cheap! You can’t get much better than that. But it does. They also give you free homemade donuts! Delicious! My friends and I have been talking about going there since 1st trimester and we were finally able to do it. It definitely hit the spot. 🙂
After breakfast I had to do a little studying for my Systems Pathology class. Our exam is on Tuesday and I want to make sure I do well. I had a little set back with my first PNS exam due to the Packer game (GO PACK GO), but I don’t regret it. Sorry Dr. Torgerud! Hehehe.
I also had our rugby Christmas party on Saturday night. 🙂 It was really fun! We did a white elephant gift exchange and then also had a potluck. Some of the gifts were really funny, and watching people’s reactions to the gifts was even better! We also dressed up in onsies or ugly Christmas sweaters. I had a penguin onesie, so of course I wore it. 😉 I left the party a little early so I could see Joey before he had to go to work. But I went to bed early that night to catch up on some sleep. Turns out I needed it, because I slept in until 9 a.m.! WAHOO!
Sunday was pretty uneventful. I continued to study and just lounged around the house. I did some much needed grocery shopping, though!
*Editor’s note: Unfortunately, Riefe’s announced they’re closing after many years in business. 🙁
